Haitian Queen Who Led With Peace
While history marks the first Thanksgiving as being in Plymouth, Massachusetts in 1621, it turns out that when Christopher Columbus (and his *sshole brother, Bartholomew) first land in modern-day Haiti in 1492, they were warmly welcomed and assisted in a similar fashion by today’s Broad, Anacaona!
A powerhouse leader of the Taino people, Anacaona led her people NOT into war, as so many neighboring tribes had done, but with a true matriarchal vision of peace and prosperity for all, she tried to erase division between the Spanish and the Taino through intermarriage, which was a remarkably effective strategy…until Nicolas de Ovando arrives from Spain as the new Governor.
